If you play League of Legends as religiously as I do, then you’d probably know that Sejuani is one of the more underpowered champions, and the fact that she wears the classic ‘Chainmail Bikini’ into snowy, icy battles is a running gag. Well, Riot has just officially announced the visual and mechanical Sejuani rework that fans have been awaiting for so long.
You can view the video above to have a gander at her new look and animations, but suffice it so say she’s had enough of the cold and has covered up properly this time. She’s also received updated lore and abilities, here they are:
Passive: Frost Armor – Damaging an enemy with an ability or basic attack grants armor and reduces movement-slowing effects on Sejuani. If Sejuani already has Frost Armor, its duration increases.
Q: Arctic Assault – Bristle charges forward, knocking enemies into the air and dealing magic damage. The charge ends after knocking an enemy champion into the air.
W: Flail of the Northern Winds – Sejuani’s next basic attack deals bonus magic damage to the target and enemies near it. She then begins to swing her flail, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies over time. If this ability is reactivated, she immediately starts swinging her flail.
Passive: Abilities and basic attacks apply Frost to enemies.
Active: All nearby enemies with Frost take magic damage and are slowed.
R: Glacial Prison – Sejuani throws a frost-forged bola in a line. If the bola hits an enemy champion, it shatters, stunning the target and nearby enemies. If the bola reaches its maximum range, it shatters and slows enemies. All enemies in the shatter area take magic damage.
Note: As with the Karma relaunch, those of you who own her before the re-release will be getting her current look in the form of the ‘Traditional Sejuani’ skin.
